I can’t believe it is finally here! We leave in 4 days for Disney, and I feel so unprepared/excited/anxious/nervous all at once! To top off my nerves, I just found out the Saints playoff game is Saturday night, the night before the race. Yup! Not only did I freak out and hurry and change my 5:30 dining reservations so I won’t miss the name, but now I know I won’t get much sleep the night before the race!

A few housekeeping items today. If you would like to follow my progress during the race, you can opt to get FREE texts or emails by going HERE. It’s easy to sign up! enter in my full name, HEATHER MONTGOMERY and you can follow me!

You can also follow me on twitter or join either of my facebook fan pages on my RIGHT toolbar. I will be tweeting and posting pictures on FB and twitter during the trip, after the race, before the race, etc. So that is a good way to keep up with me over the course of my trip!

and now, for a couple of flashback pictures from last year’s race!




QOTD: Do you have any race goals for the year? Run a 5k? Get a new PR?



It’s official! Look what I did yesterday!

YIKES!!! Bobby and I are really running a marathon! I am petrified and excited at the same time. There are no refunds. There is no turning back now! We will really start training next week I think, and we will go from there. I can’t believe I am going to run 26.2 miles. I always thought those people were crazy!

We also have our rooms booked in Disney as well! We are staying a whole week, as it will be during our 4 year anniversary. (What an anniversary, being in tons of mental and physical pain….yay…) So we are staying the first 3 nights at the Wilderness Lodge then the last 4 nights at the Grand Floridian. I hope I am alive after so I can enjoy the hotel ha! We are traveling Friday-Friday, so we will get there Friday lunchtime and go straight to the expo. I love expos, they are so fun. I also love buying stuff so it’s a win/win situation. I can’t wait to have that medal around my neck! Fair warning, I will probably cry. Just be prepared. Now you will get to follow my crazy training, my ups and downs, and see me through to the finish! Everyone ready?

Today I am not sure if we are running or going to cross train at the gym. It was supposed to be pouring raining…but it’s not…so I don’t know. hhmmm….
